ATLANTA - Hines Ward knows a little about the pressure of being the nation's top football recruit. Ward was a two-sport athlete at Forest Park High School back in the nineties, and much like prized recruit Jacob Eason this year, every school wanted Ward to play quarterback for their team back in 1993.
Ward went on to star at wide receiver and running back at Georgia before winning two super bowls with the Steelers. He knows how to win. Something he's confident his former college teammate Kirby Smart will do in Athens.
I sat down with Ward Wednesday afternoon to talk about the recent changes at his Alma Mater, and the possibility that he could return to the UGA sidelines as an assistant coach. That's right, Hines Ward is confident he can help Kirby Smart make the Dawgs better, and eventually compete for a national championship.
